I stopped by an antique store in St. Joseph, Missouri yesterday. I found this. I can be swayed by low, low prices. The price was only $1 and I could tell it was vintage fabric. So I bought it, before really examining it. Now the big question is: What is it?
I'll describe it. It is about 2 feet long, with what seems to be a cardboard tube inside. Look how neatly the ends are finished, the fabric corners are held in place with snaps.
Unfurled, it is about a yard long. The tube is completely covered by fabric.
My first guess is that this is some sort of privacy shade. But I've never seen anything like it before. Have you?
